Strategic Plan

The NHSO enriches Connecticut’s cultural landscape through exceptional performances and education programs that are accessible to residents from all walks of life. Innovative programming offered statewide inspires deeper audience engagement and meaningful artistic and educational collaborations which increase the reach and impact of the Symphony. Authentic commitments to diversity, equity, inclusion, and access move the NHSO to provide representation that reflects the richly diverse communities we serve in all areas of Symphony leadership.

The 2020-2023* Strategic Plan focuses on the following key strategic goals:

  1. Design and present an inspiring artistic program of high-quality performances and education programs.  
  2. Achieve diversity, equity, and inclusion by engaging our communities in our content and efforts.
  3. Consciously build diversity among the board, staff, musicians, donors, and audiences that reflects the population of the communities we serve.
  4. Build the capacity of the organization to support long-term growth, sustainability, and resiliency.

*This plan will be extended through the 2023-2024 season in order to involve our next Music Director, Perry So, in the planning process. NHSO’s next Strategic Plan will initiate in the 2024-2025 season, which also marks the start of Perry’s tenure.
